So after not cutting my hair for almost a year, I felt like cutting it myself the other day. It's also been at least 2 years since I had it cut this short, so maybe it's because my hair was so big and curly that I wasn't able to see this, but it was only after cutting it the other day that I noticed how much my hair has been greying in the past few years, which I wasn't expecting. I had already noticed a handful of grey hairs on each side of my head in my early 20's, but you could only see it if you standed very close and under some light. Now I have dozens of them and you can probably see them even if you're standing 10 feet away. 39 posts and 5 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.
I'm only in my late 20s and I already have as much grey hair as people in their late 30s and 40s. My 40 year old cousin actually seems to have less greys than me right now.
To make matters worse, my hair is also thinning/balding at the top and I'm getting fine lines on my forehead and around my mouth and nose (which is annoying since I rarely leave my house and get sun so at least my face/skin could be fine). At this rate, by the time I reach 40 I'll look like a balding and uglier Anderson Cooper.
Any fellow wizards also aging sooner than "normal" (be it greying hair, balding, wrinkles, etc)? If yes, does it bother you?
it's called psychogenesis, you fell for the age meme
I look like some systems programmer who wrote some UNIX file systems in C or some shit except I'm not grey yet. I just look like a boomer software developer. I'm only 28. I have the life experience and maturity of a fifteen-year-old.
congrats op, now you will look like paulie from the sopranos.
he is my favorite character
I had an instructor at work with totally white hair but without hair loss. his hair was voluminous and full and I always thought how cool it looked.
but yeah, my hair has been thinning since I was like 21 or something
